### February 23 Wow! February 23 was a *wild* day in the history of invention! On that day, somebody decided to invent some **seriously dubious** things: * The [Cucumber Vacuum](https://www.buzzfeed.com/daves4/the-worlds-most-pointless-inventions-ever-made), which is essentially a vacuum cleaner for cucumbers - as if cucumbers need any help getting clean! * [The electric shopping trolley](https://www.iflscience.com/technology/stupidest-inventions-of-all-time-yes-they-are-real/) – a device which is never used because it’s just plain impractical * And the infamous [Lawn Chair Rocket](https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/21600/15-awfully-stupid-inventions-never-shouldve-happened) – a failed experiment with a [chlorine bleach-filled champagne bottle rocket] (https://www.ranker.com/list/worst-invented-products/john-mendez?ref=collections_index_link) that *nearly* ended in disaster! I guess the moral of the story is that some inventions can be pretty stupid and you should think twice before creating something on February 23!
